Are We Ready for These Young Kids?
Today’s charities engage kids through fundraisers in elementary school, middle grades and high school. This means we need to leverage the significant network of peers of this age group but not force today’s young adults into our face-to-face model. Yes, we want them to eventually show up to a track, walking course or some other specific location, but we also know the process of fundraising and cementing strong commitment to fundraising for an event starts long before the actual day of the event.
